Double Fortune!

G and I took a short break from preparing for Oscar Dinner 2008 by spending the evening at the Sheraton Centre, Toronto. While not our favourite hotel in the City, by any stretch, it was a great deal on the Family Day long weekend, and was my Valentine’s Day prezzie! Woohoo!

1) the view of new City Hall and Nathan Phillips Square from our 38th floor room; 2) the lobby at Sheraton; 3) the view from the 43rd floor Club Lounge

As I had a late afternoon performance at the Four Season’s Centre, the stay here was ideal as the Sheraton is – literally – a 30 second walk to the stage door entrance for the Four Season’s.

4) the bed!; 5) Hong Shing’s

After the show, I met G up in the Club Lounge where we enjoyed the view, the drinks, and the food … but certainly not the crowds! It was a zoo at the Sheraton. We had a late dinner in an old Chinatown establishment, Hong Shing Chinese, where I ended up with two fortunes! Doubly lucky me!

6) skaters looking like ants at Nathan Phillips Square; 7) my double fortune en français reading something like (top) “You’re inclined to come up with unconventional solutions”; (bottom) “You’re deeply sensitive and imaginative” … both true btw

This morning we headed down for an early morning swim in the indoor-outdoor pool (tons of fun) before heading home.

It was a wonderfully relaxing Saturday! Thanks G!

  6. Wow I’ve never seen an indoor-outdoor pool. Were the temperatures of the two pools significantly different?
